As always, there were many great projects worked on back in February. Be sure to check them out and give the authors your feedback!

  • Binary Grid for the TI-83+ series: Jeffitus started work on his TI_Basic game Binary Grid, where the player must mentally convert decimal numbers to binary. The game works on all 83/84+ models due to its use of the homescreen, so go check it out!
  • BOSshell for the TI-84+CE dev thread: beckadamtheinventor continued work on his shell in ICE for the TI-84 Plus CE. This month he began working on BOSshell version 5, as well as BOS-BASIC, an interpreted language to go along with the shell. This shell looks very promising, so go ahead and try out the latest version!
  • DVD Screensaver [TI-84 Plus CE] [ICE]: TheLastMillennial wrote a DVD screensaver in ICE for the TI-84 Plus CE. Now you can remember the days of bouncing DVD logos by watching this one almost hit the corners! There is even a small Easter egg, and the source code is included in the download linked in the thread, so go visit it to download this program for yourself.
  • Fruit Ninja CE [C]: Michael2_3B resumed work on his graphically impressive port of the popular mobile game Fruit Ninja! This month he was hard at work on the menus for the game. This game does look truly amazing so far, so go show him some some support in the topic!
  • Grammer 2- The App: Xeda112358 posted an updated version of the powerful interpreted language Grammer, for the TI-83+/84+ series of calculators. This update contains some support for floats, which is a nice addition. The topic contains links to download the latest versions, so if you have a monochrome calc, try it for yourself!
  • JPL: A game for Color and Monochrome calcs!: TheLastMillennial began the process of porting his spaceship game to the HP Prime, using the powerful interpreted language PPL. The game seems to run quite fast based on the screenshots, and the game's source is hosted on GitHub, so go check it out!
  • Lumber Tycoon - My first C game: slimeenergy started and finished this simple game written in C for the CE. In the game, you continually chop down trees, sell the wood, and buy new axes. The game has some really nice features, such as day/night cycles, so go and download it from the link in the thread!
  • NSPICE - A Circuit Builder and Simulator: M4dasOne posted this very impressive circuit builder for the TI-Nspire. So far it looks like this project has a lot of features, with many more planned for the future. Go and show M4dasOne some support in the thread, where you can find a screen recording, more information, and even download the first version and try it yourself!
  • Nuclear Reactor Simulator [84+CE BASIC]: SM84CE continued refining his TI-Basic program for the CE. This month he worked on the "temp hold" feature, which just another in the long list of features in this project. Read the thread to see them all in action, and download the program for yourself from the archives!
  • Pyscheron - A rebuild of E:ToR: Iambian announced his port of the unfinished monochrome calculator game Escheron: Twilight over Ragnoth. The port is written in Python, and the graphics look like they came straight from an old TI-83+! Go check out the thread for more info and to see screenshots.
  • Swordfighter: Classic Sword Fighting in Your Pocket: [PixelPerfect] released this TI-Basic game for the TI-84 Plus CE. In this game (as the title suggests), you fight one-on-one battles with your sword. Visit the thread for a link to the download page and find more information.
  • Tanks! CE: commandblockguy continued making progress on his port of the popular game Tanks from Wii play. This month he improved the collision system, added a fancy new start screen, and even posted an alpha release! Go check out the thread to see this game for yourself!
  • TINotes:an easy way to create and manage notes in calculator: alienk wrote a web app that assists users in creating notes to send to their calculators! The website is quite easy to use, and works very well. Visit the thread to show some support and try out the site yourself!
  • Xenon Development thread | ICE Shell: Alvajoy123 posted some updates on his ICE shell Xenon. This shell has many features, like a nice GUI and a terminal. Check out the thread for the todo list and more!
  • Zombie Chase CE [C]: Spenceboy98 released an update to his game Zombie Chase. In addition to fixing the bug causing the calc to be reset, he also added some more features like bombs that act as lures and a new font for the game end screen. Show him some support in the thread, and download this game for yourself!
  • [84+ CE TI-Basic] Typing-based calculator: ShinyGardevoir began work on an ambitious project, a program that allows the user to type in expressions, rather than having to use the dedicated buttons on the calculator. Aside from this, there are also plans to add more functions not built in to the TI-OS. Check out the thread for screenshots and to see how the project is coming along.


That's all for February; remember to vote for your favorite completed project, and we'll see you soon for the March PotM!
